I like the feminine nature of the off-shoulder bodice and the fact that there is not a male equivalent.
This was a last minute packing decision and I saw this dress online at Macy's just a few days before leaving. I do not think I would have ordered this " X by Xscape" gown if it were not in petite, lacking time to get a regular length hemmed. It was the perfect length with heels and fit beautifully just as designed. The slit leg was not a look I had ever dared before, but also worked - stunningly!
That evening I put it on with a strapless bra and minimal under things and I felt alive, elegant and incredibly feminine. I walked slowly down the long cabin hall, down the stairs and into the main dining room at the front of the ship. The maitre d' that I now had come to know from already having eaten there four nights, gave me the up-down look and smiled. As I was walked slowly through the whole front of the dining room to my table, I took in every look. The attention that a red dress garners is electrifying and not for the faint-of-dress.
Never before had I ever worn anything that attracted so much attention - an Escape to cherish!
Here is what I wore the other evenings for dinner on the cruise.

Royal Caribbean is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. No celebration is complete without a little cake! A Main Dining Room after dinner treat.
